I would encourage everyone to browse the article in the following link, concerning the readiness (lack thereof) of our 50 states voting systems:
BMT (Bottomless Moral Turpitude…..aka, the guy occupying the Oval Office) has clearly stated that he would listen to any information offered by a foreign entity, during his own 2020 campaign. Take him at his word. We know that Putin’s hackers attacked our election process last time, that is a given that all of the USA security agencies agree on, which BMT has, right on the world stage, “dissed,” as he snuggled up to murderous Vlad. And there is absolutely no doubt that Putin will, and is even right now as stated by Robert Mueller, working at interfering with our sacred democratic elections.
Now in a rational world, with at least a modicum of ethical integrity, both the Republicans and Democrats and others would be very concerned about this threat, come together, and do everything Congress is capable of doing to thwart the threat, even pressuring BMT. But “it ain’t happening.” The Senate under good old Mitch, who is determined to block anything that comes out of the House, is blocking legislation to help bolster states’ voting systems.
While voting systems do need to be upgraded in many states, the threats to our election process at large are many, and America’s most hallowed attribute, democracy, is at stake. There are any number of ways for devious villains like Russia, or China, or Iran, or who knows, to inject problems and outright chaos into our campaigns and the final voting process. Russia wants to re-elect BMT. China probably would love to see him defeated, as well as Iran. No doubt there are anonymous players who may be anywhere in the world, acting as a loose-knit consortium of hackers, or just as a lone wolf right here in some bedroom, even a teen who is a genius with hacking, who could create tremendous havoc during the campaigns and on election day, and during even the electoral college – actually without ever “touching” a voting machine. I could list any number of ways to “screw with” Americans’ voting, but I shall not as I don’t want to put any negative thoughts into the ether. Any good security consultant would back up my claim I am certain.
The point is, that IF we had a genuine President in the Oval Office, one who really does put America first, and not just himself, that President would be standing behind the podium, with the real Seal behind her or him, telling the world in no uncertain terms that NO interference will be tolerated, and then meeting with all the necessary key people to make sure all measures are undertaken to prepare for 2020.
I know this will not happen. I know because I know BMT will condone any “help” he can get from Russia, ignoring what the other opportunists may do, all to enhance his chances of being re-elected, thus avoiding being arrested and prosecuted for obstruction of justice, and probably a number of other crimes related to his financial sham empire, and possibly other matters related to his “attitude” toward women. He will do any and everything he can to extend the protection of being in the Presidency, to run out the clock on the indictments surely being framed.
I also know that if BMT does lose the 2020 election tally, he will find some way to sue in court, alleging some fraud – ala the “hanging chad” episode of years ago – and will do all he can to remain in office. Remember who he has appointed to the SCOTUS, should such a law suit be put before the Court. It is conceivable to me that by hook or crook, he will do everything possible to remain in office, even to the point of totally shutting down the functioning of our Government.
So, hang on for a ride friends!
